How I Used My Scor-Tape

Our sponsor this week at Midnight Madness is Scor-Pal. They so generously donated 1/4" Scor-Tape and 6" x 6" Scor-Tape for us to use. I have only used the 1/4" Scor-Tape at this point. And can I say it's awesome! You don't even need scissors...just tear and go! :)

I needed to make a thick style envelope box for a card I had made. I usually use glue as my adhesive, but I wanted to try out this tape and put it to the test!

I ran a strip along the point that was going to fold in.

I ran some more tape on the back of the decorative paper for the inside flap.

Put it all together and DONE! No waiting for glue to dry! SWEET!

And I used it to adhere my Gorgeous Prima flower to the outside of the flap for decoration! That flower is not going anywhere! :)
When I get the chance, I am going to play around with the 6" x 6" Scor-Tape. Looks like I can do some FUN things with this too! Thanks, Scor-Pal!

Sue, nice tutorial and testimonial for Scor-Tape...I just can't make a card without it...and certainly not an envelope box...Oh my goodness...that is required for sure because my cards are so heavy...I have used it to put 2 sheets of DP together for my box and it works like a dream...that way I don't have to cut a piece for the flap and it makes my box much more substantial...Have a great week...Hugs..Jacque

Great advice, Jacque! I haven't used a full sheet on the inside before as it seems to move or pucker when I use glue! Now I can try this again! Thank you! :)
